Texas QSO Party Results – 2017

October 4th, 2017 Comments off

Battleship TEXAS Amateur Radio Station

Band     QSOs     Pts   Mult   Pt/Q

7     194     386   78   2.0

14       35       70   20   2.0

Total     229     456   98   2.0

Score: 44,688 1 Mult = 2.3 Q

Operators: Mike Smith, N5TGL; Mike Monsour, AC0TX; Mike Brannan, KA5OXA

We operated from roughly 9 am to 9 pm Saturday then 9 am to 2 pm Sunday.

About 50 people stopped by during the day. Saturday night about 30 Cub Scouts visited us and a few were very interested.

We certainly had a lot of fun. Access was restricted due to ongoing critical repairs so we could not raise better antennas. The little Pac 12 did yeoman duty on 20. The 40 meter ships vertical was our big performer. It made contacts as short as 12 miles and out to about 600 miles. Ninety-eight out of 254 counties were bagged. We criss-crossed the country with contacts in Washington to Florida, Arizona to Pennsylvania, South Carolina to California. It was fun.

We definitely need more operators so we can get better breaks.

Come join us.
